Default Terminology question: Comfortable with mono and non-mono relationships.

So, I've been reading up on Dan Savage and some other non-monogamy relationship forums, and learning all the new jargon (). I haven't actually found a term for what I am, and I was wondering if you guys could enlighten me.

What would you call somebody that doesn't see fidelity or monogamy as having anything to do with "restriction or ownership", meaning that it would be possible to have a healthy mono relationship; but at the same time, would also be willing to have a non-monogamous relationship without too many tribulations. Somebody that is versatile, relationship-wise.

If there isn't a well-known term, this would be an excellent place to start making shit up.

Monogamish. You'll have to scroll down to the bottom to see Dan Savage's explanation.
